I am trying to get a better backup solution than the usb 2.0 ports that our Dell 2900 series server has available for backups. What are the other options to upgrade via expansion slot in the server to get faster than usb 2.0 speeds for large backups of a few TB?
I have no drive bays open and this is for a weekly off site disaster recovery solution. (As in whatever I use must be portable to move to a location outside the building after the backup happens...)
USB 3 card ,esata or firewire are all faster than regular USB 2.
So just take your pick according to budget
